Repost: In Their Words with Thomas Oakley


Last year, Thomas Oakley joined The Literacy Lab team as a Program Manager and moved back to his hometown of Springfield, MA. A true believer in the power of public education, Thomas lives out our core values every day by supporting our first cohort of literacy tutors in western Massachusetts. Recently, the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts featured Thomas and his story on their blog series “In Their Words.” Read about Thomas’s motivation to come back to Springfield and ensure that kids like him have the support they need to be strong and confident readers!
